History of solidarity with Basques marks Uruguay elections

Fifteen years ago the Uruguayan left went to the streets massively against the extradition of three Basque refugees. These mobilizations were supported by the
Frente Amplio (Ample Front), today in power, and were brutally quelled by the right-wing President Luis Alberto Lacalle, killing one, Fernando Morroni, and injuring dozens.

This institutional murderer is still at large and running again for President. For that reason today a demonstration has been called in Montevideo, demanding that Lacalle is judged for his crimes, that history is not whitewashed and ratifying the solidarity with the struggle of the Basque Country for independence and that of all peoples for self-determination.

Because self-determination is democracy and democracy is self-determination.
